It was my first visit here yesterday to see Harvey Fierstein's 'Casa Valentina' and I have to say what a cracking little venue this is!

I came here to see Titanic during preview.

Upon entering the venue, I felt like the place was pretty run down, and was starting to worry about my next few hours at this venue. I also thought the worst of the quality of the production. I fully expected an amateur community theatre type of production.
